True Grit Bison are fed minerals, hay, molasses, and oats based on their age. As bison get closer to finishing, we allow them free choice feed – meaning they have access to high quality oats, hay and water as desired.
We select our butchers based on the cleanliness of their facility, expertise, and reputation. All our butchers have been approved by Alberta Health Services and are regularly inspected.
Handling and Vaccinations
We handle bison in a low stress environment to review the animals’ overall health and to prevent worms using Ivomec. A happy herd is a healthy herd.
Bison meat is full of flavour and packed with nutrients.
Bison meat has a lower fat content and a lower calorie count than beef. It is a complete protein – meaning it contains all 9 essential amino acids necessary for the human diet. Bison meat contains high amounts of iron, zinc, and vitamin B. Additionally, the meat has high levels of selenium – a mineral that plays a critical role for metabolic and thyroid function, and helps protect the body from damage caused by stress.
True grit is making a decision and standing by it, doing what must be done. No moral man can have peace of mind if he leaves undone what he knows he should have done.John Wayne
I ordered my bison in the spring. It did not disappoint! Tastes just like beef without all the fat! I love how my burgers don’t shrink on the BBQ. I will definitely be ordering more this fall! If you want to support local and want high quality meat I suggest you give them a try!Michelle GrantFacebook review

Recently received our order of meat. The quality is unmatched and the pricing was incredibly low! Ended up being cheaper than a grocery store for way better quality. Can’t say enough about how easy it was to deal with True Grit and how happy I am with my order.Jesse SherstanFacebook review
